Deprecated since version 3.27: Support for Extra Generators is deprecated and will be removed from a future version of CMake. IDEs may use the cmake-file-api(7) to view CMake-generated project build trees.

Generates CodeBlocks project files.

Project files for CodeBlocks will be created in the top directory and in every subdirectory which features a CMakeLists.txt file containing a project() call. Additionally a hierarchy of makefiles is generated into the build tree. The appropriate make program can build the project through the default all target. An install target is also provided.

New in version 3.10: The CMAKE_CODEBLOCKS_EXCLUDE_EXTERNAL_FILES variable may be set to ON to exclude any files which are located outside of the project root directory.

This "extra" generator may be specified as:

CodeBlocks - MinGW Makefiles

Generate with MinGW Makefiles.

CodeBlocks - NMake Makefiles

CodeBlocks - NMake Makefiles JOM

New in version 3.8: Generate with NMake Makefiles JOM.
